The car of the future: compressed air




View bernardd » 25/10/10, 12:03

MDI is no longer the only industrialist to defend the concept: concept cars now use compressed air technology.

Volvo: LA Auto Show concept cars Volvo Air Motion

Honda: Los Angeles Design Challenge 2010: Honda Air Concept

Logic: any engineer with knowledge of thermodynamics can understand that it is one of the best known solutions for propelling a vehicle.

We must not get too carried away, because since the time that MDI develops and seeks to market it, it seems that the equation is not so simple to realize that it seems. : Cry:

Of course, but it's been 10 or 20 years that all manufacturers have made electric vehicles.

And there, it is the first time that we see manufacturers installed publicly mount their thinking on compressed air, because they now see the gains.

It's a change of wind: would they have gone around the problems of electric batteries?

No runaway in sight :-) We can see that MDI is advancing:

I see 40 patents for the 2 spellings of Guy Nègre, without counting other possible spellings of his name or of MDI.

So it's going on.

Swiss licensee of MDI announced the construction of its factory.

Are you talking about their hydrogen electric car project?

Honda is not a useless concept car specialist, there are far worse than them.

Then they put designers from all over the world to work, you have to give these people the opportunity to exhibit their creations in salons under a big brand.

Among the useless bebelles of Honda there was the Argento Vivo, 15 years ago, signed Pininfarina: http://www.leblogauto.com/2007/05/tiroi ... -vivo.html
